2004-08-15 The Turn of the Screw (adapted by Neville Teller)
Henry James's novel must be one of the scariest stories of all time, so close the curtains and get ready for the hairs on your arms to stand on end in this dramatization by Neville Teller. The story centers on a young governess, sent to a country house to look after a London gentleman's nephew and niece. The children, Miles and Flora, seem almost too angelic to be true at first, but who is that man with curly red hair and sharp eyes that keeps staring at Miles, and why is Flora getting out of bed at night to look at a mysterious woman in the garden? Cathy Sara (whom you may remember as Lauren Walsh from The Archers, one of the women who had the misfortune of being two-timed by Tom Archer) plays the governess who may have stumbled upon some evil ghostly forces at work or, alternatively, could easily be a psychologically damaged woman who poses a potentially terrible danger to her charges.
